Well I ache most days. Could be joint pains, sudden stabbing pains or just a good old fashioned headache.
I can no longer count my grey hairs, there are far to many. Won’t even start on the fact I’m turning in to a werewolf.
Cameras seem to age me. When I look in the mirror I see me. The same me from twenty years ago. The camera ages me beyond my years. I know this because I often see pictures of people I went to school with and they look amazing, and they are forty. So why does the camera lie about my looks!
All I ever want to do is sleep. I can fall asleep as faszzzzzzzz. Sorry dropped off again.
Skin tags? WTF. Liver spots or the correct term, age spots. Just rude!
My personality isn’t much better. I like to be on my own. I like silence. I’m a total bitch when I’m with the rest of the human race. I’m brutally honest. In fact I can deliberately go out of my way to crush a persons soul. I never say sorry. If I need to say sorry it means I shouldn’t have said it in the first place. And well I did, so I’m not sorry.
Everything annoys me. People with pushchairs, people walking down a pavement and not going in single file. People walking slowly. People driving. People shopping. Parents, children, yapping dogs, yapping old people, people, the snail I stepped on in the garden, the stairs, the door I walked in to, the bed I stubbed my toe on, when my kids say mum every five seconds. Think you get the picture! Yes I’m very grumpy.
All this happened before turning 40, so can’t really blame it on that. In fact 40 is no different than 39. The truth about being 40, I just don’t care. I haven’t changed as a person. Like me hate me, I just don’t care. I actually like me. I find myself amusing, and I’ve got some good friends who get me. If you don’t, that’s actually your problem.
People need to take a look at themselves. If your unhappy with something about yourself, change it. Answer these questions without being self absorbed. Have you got friends who you care about, and they care about you? Do you have family who will be there for you, and vice versa? Can you look in the mirror and despite your faults, still say your a good person?
Love the good and the bad and embrace who you are. You will probably find out you’re pretty awesome. We have one life, so live it to the full.
The truth about turning 40! Apparently you become philosophical.
